Good to see. He's a good young rider now at CWO after the Eclipse fallout. Know about his efforts in the short TTs (may have won in Thailand), and impressed much in one of the stages in HA Azerbaijan tour before being eaten up in the final metres. He and his team mate Mitch Lovelock Fay will be ones to look out for in CWO. Should do well in races like the Tour of China which CWO controlled after a TTT. Think even Honey Shotz (Australia) were decent in the race.

What have they done to the Sun Tour ? It's half the race it used to be. Shorter stages and less stages. I suppose it's all about TV coverage or some such.

Partially to do with money and the calendar adjustments I think. At least this way, it flows well with the rest of the races in the Australian Summer. I do agree that it is a shame that the Sun Tour has been shortened.

Mostly to do with UCI/TDU intransigence.

They changed it to bring more attention to it and to save cash. By running it in Jan they hopped to get more pro's here for the Bay Crits, Nationals and TDU.

Also given the prologue and Bay Crits were both in Williamstown on the same day they saved time.

Speaking of Bay Crits - Caleb Ewan, what a star. kid is a very smart bike rider, strong and has a great kick. He was amazing to watch last year when he basically took on all of Orica Green Edge own and came from third wheel in the sprint.

That is the way they are spinning it but they moved because they had to.
Their traditional slot got clobbered by Tour of Hangzhou- which never happened anyway
There are not enough spare weekends in January so they reduced the format and lost UCI status.
Downgrade in UCI status means less pro's than last time.
To continue at this time they need the TDU back one week.
(Bay Crits has been cut back one day to accomodate this farce too.)

Any news on the first stage today?

Disregard, found the Twitter and see Aaron Donnelly has taken the first stage. Seemed to be that he won from a small breakaway group of 7 that split into 3.

Very hot out there today, so kudos to all who finished.

There is a picture of Haas in the presentations tent so he may have snatched the overall lead.

I replied to 'A Frank' who had a 2nd try and put up yesterday's prologue top 3. But it got deleted.
